Reviewsprovide synthesis of important bodies of work.
Notes on Methodologyare papers that outline new approaches in the discipline.
Historical Notespresent short overviews or biographies on important individuals that contributed to the discipline.
Noteworthy Data SetsThis section gives opportunity to publish long-term data sets, that, for exceptional reasons, lack proper statistical analyses or profound discussion. Long term data have a special, intrinsic value, particularly in the light of pollinator declines.
